What am I doing here?

What Am I Doing Here? by Abner Dean, New York: Simon and Schuster, 1947.

I was initially drawn to this book because it reminded me of the Chas Addams and Ed Arno collections from my dad’s bookshelf. There are stylistic similarities to the classic New Yorker cartoons, but Abner Dean’s work dispenses with their gloss to espouse a much bleaker reality.
